Nearly any building that is being insured will require an electrical inspection. Due to recent changes in electrical standards and an increase in the number of fires caused by electrical problems, insurance companies are requiring that most buildings receive an electrical inspection before a policy is granted. Typically, any building owner that does not receive an electrical inspection is liable to pay 3-5 times more for insurance than they would otherwise.
